Existing U.S. trade agreements may constrain President Joe Biden’s ability to deliver on his promise to spend $400 billion over four years on American-made goods, says Daniel McDowell, associate professor of political science. "Many of these deals include 'national treatment' measures that the U.S. is obligated to honor. Ignoring such commitments could lead to trade disputes with key allies and complicate Biden’s efforts to rebuild relations with those countries after Trump soured them," he says.
